#nc-09: McCready FINALLY coughs up the Hijab Honey’s money. (Allah Akbar!)

  We were the first ones to call the Anointed Ginger One out on his anti-semitic pro-terrorist associations.  Dan McCready had Ilhan Omar’s money since November, but has been silent on it.  Instead, he’s been loudly questioning the moral compass of a certain Baptist preacher….

#nc-03: Doctor Flip-Flop

  Nope.  THAT is not the newest Bond villain.   We’re talking about congressional candidate Joan Perry (R) of Kinston.  She’s getting  a lot of mileage from hugging babies in her campaign ads.  And she should.  As a veteran, respected pediatrician, she’s done a lot…
